Normally I plan my trips well in advance, but not this time! I went to San Jose to meet with a customer on short notice. How did my routine differ?
First, I packed ultralight. Toiletres and fresh clothes went into my laptop bag, meaning that I didn’t need a separate bag.
Second, I went reservationless. I dent reserve my rental car until I was on the airplane. I didn’t reserve my hotel until I was parked in its parking lot. This was slightly nervewracking, but it gave me maximum flexibility to accomodate my customer’s schedule.
Now I just want to get home!
